I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Meet Krissy at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society

Alhambra Source partnered with the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society for a weekly column, "Pet of the Week." Every week we'll introduce you to a new animal looking for a home. This week's pet is Krissy, a Chihuahua and miniature Pinscher mix. Read more about Krissy below!
 
Name: Krissy
ID: 20629
Gender: Female 
Breed: Chihuahua and miniature Pinscher mix  
Age: 2 years old 
Weight: 13 pounds 
Fur: Tan fur 
 
Krissy is a 2-year-old Chihuahua-miniature Pinscher mix who came to the shelter as a stray with no identification. She has a short coat of tan fur, is very easy to care for, and weighs about 13 pounds.  
 
Krissy has a happy spirit, full of youthful energy and enthusiasm. You will find her at the gate to her kennel, wagging her tail and jumping for joy at seeing new people walk by. Krissy loves people and is excited to spend time with her human friends, always ready to meet new ones as well. She enjoys attention in the form of pets, cuddles and massages, and will return the affection with gentle kisses.
 
Krissy enjoys going for walks, although her enthusiasm sometimes overwhelms her ability to focus on the leash.  She needs a home where she gets regular 
exercise and a yard where she can burn off some of that excess energy.  Krissy seems to be a smart girl who is treat-motivated, so she should be easy to train.
 
Krissy was hit by a car before she arrived at the shelter, so she is nervous around vehicles and street noise. She just needs a little reassurance that she is okay and will not be hurt again. She has fully recovered from her prior injuries physically, but it may take longer to become comfortable walking near traffic. Once she is away from street activity, her happy energy returns and she is ready to romp, play, and explore the world.
 
Krissy needs an active family to give her a loving home where she gets the training and exercise she needs. She is an affectionate, playful dog who will brighten the lives she touches. Come in to meet this sweet silly girl to see if she is the best friend you are looking for.
 
Her adoption fee is $130 and includes spay surgery, vaccinations, microchip and a free wellness exam at a participating veterinarian. Feel free to call us at (626) 286-1159 for more information on Krissy. She currently resides at the San Gabriel Valley Humane Society located at 851 E. Grand Avenue in San Gabriel.  We are located off San Gabriel Blvd., north of Mission and south of Las Tunas.  To arrange a “Meet and Greet” with Krissy, please stop by any time from 10:30am to 4:30pm Tuesday through Sunday. See our website at www.sgvhumane.org for information and photos of all our wonderful pets.    
2016 calendars are available at the shelter for a $10 donation. The photos were selected among hundreds submitted by shelter supporters. If you would like to order a 2016 calendar, you can stop by the shelter or do so through PayPal. Go to the shelter website at sgvhumane.org for more information.
